Ryan Sutter reveals how he discovered a passion for endurance sports after injury ended his NFL career. Now, after fighting his way to multiple finishes near the top of his age group in triathlon, Ryan has reached a plateau and knows he’ll have to transform his approach to training and nutrition to take his performance to the next level. Meanwhile, in order to achieve his goal of qualifying for the XTERRA USA Championship for the first time, he’ll need a top-three finish in his age group at XTERRA Indian Peaks. It’s one of the last races, and last chances, he’ll have to qualify this season.
